two views of stibnite crystals from China
Stibnite is Sb2S3
Stibnite is antimony sulfide. It is distinguished both by gray metallic color and by its
mineral habit of form slender prismatic crystals that are bent.
Stibnite is the primary ore of antimony. However, fine crystals of stibnite are worth
much more than their antimony content. These crystals are about 15 centimeters long.
Notice the bent crystal.
